"show" me your packed sleeping bag

Yes a zillion threads but what I want to see and compare and I think other would find it useful is the size of the sleep bag when packed.

I checked out the 30+ Kilo bag from north face, down bag with it's own compression bag, helmet is a large HJC:

It got down pretty darn small.
I was hoping to find a 20+ bag that would do this and be about the same size
what ya got

I added one of those fleece bag liners and got my 40d bag comfortable to 30d.

I have a mirco fleece liner etc, but as for the small pack size it is negated by having to bring more small packages. Not a bad thing as it is easier to pack a few smaller items than 1 bigger one.

I'd love to see what a BA summit looks like packed. BA does not have "stuffed" sizes listed on their website, only "packed" sizes.

My old Mountain Hardwear flip bag stuffed thinner than that but a little longer. The flip has a 20 degree side and a 40 degree side. Nice idea. I dumped the way too big stuff sack that it came with and used a 6.5x16" stuff sack, compressed it down to 6.5x around 12. It ended up being more or less the same size as my synmat 9 DLX.

Snugpack Jungle Bag. It's OK for down to the lower 40ies, and packs really small. In the other bag is a Hennessy hammock.

Check out the LaFuma Extreme line. I have a 45 degree bag for summertime that's about the size of a Nalgene 32oz water bottle when packed



The 600 is the 45deg bag... I think the 800 is a 35deg bag

That pic has the bag loosely stuffed into the sack right? You can further compress it to less than half that correct?

Took a while, I recalled there was a site that showed the stuffed sizes of various bags next to a 1 gallon bottle.

It was Moontrail.com
